Learn to Temper the Tantrums in Kids
Children may engage in tantrums to express themselves, test the limits of their independence, and see how they can influence their caregivers with their behavior. Learn how to handle this behavior and keep your cool.
Who It's For
Parents and caregivers of young children.
Why It Empowers
Tantrums typically occur when children become overwhelmed and don’t yet have the social and emotional maturity to handle the situation. As a result, they appear to “lose it”. This can be frustrating, upsetting, and even embarrassing for the adults involved. With this activity, caregivers can learn how to handle and reduce incidents of tantrum behavior.
